The Imitation and invitation of Temptation True Story:
Let’s set the scene for there is loneliness and a false sense of passion (obtained through sex).
The characters She meaning me and He (His name kept confidential as I am not about shaming).
The phone call:
He: I called because I wanted to apologize. I have to apologize because I went up in my head, and thought you were seeing someone else on the website (dating site).
She: Apology accepted. Mind you there had been no He call or siting for over three (3) months. 🤔
She questioned why would you think there was someone else? She never gave the indication that there was someone else.
Thought: He could be projecting out of guilt.
He: went on to say I started to call you yesterday!
She: (thought) am I suppose to be honored by “I started to call you yesterday!”
Point to ponder: what would be the difference in yesterday or a couple of months? The point is He never called.
He went on to ask what are you doing later?
She other than promoting my business on IG Live at 2pm, nothing afterwards.
He: I am headed to your area coming to check on my son and grandson, so pack your bags as I want to see you.
She: no I am not packing my bags, but you can take me to dinner.
A shift in energy, She could feel it through the phone.
He: made small talk asking about the business. Then the invitation comes again by He saying give me a call later to let me know, because if you (She) ain’t coming then I (He) is not getting a hotel room.
Question: Did He miss “No” the first time.
She: no that is not happening you see I (She) is looking for something more. I (She) can have sex with anyone.
He: we already know how we make each other feel.
She: I (She) in the moment good, but when you (He) leaves and no call for days and months, I (She) feels empty.
You (I, She or He) make Excuses you’re Miserable you Procrastinate you’re Tempted by distractions that don’t serve your purpose and you wear a Yoke around your neck
Yep, had enough of that feeling and now since I am spiritually aligned and healing. I (She) know my worth and this body is my and GOD’s temple. If I honor GOD and His love for me I can one day have the love, passion and great sex with the one partner, mate, spouse, best friend GOD has for me.
The IMITATION was the fake apology. When I said no to the false INVITATION there was an immediate shift in his chance to seduce out of lust. The TEMPTATION was thwarted, and SHE did not hear from HE again!
What was different about SHE that HE could not comprehend. It was the GOD in SHE.
And do not lead us into temptation (Matt 6:13, NKJV).
“No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”
I Corinthians 10:13 NKJV
I hope this story has been enlightening and you see the connection between spiritual alignment and GOD.
Be restored! Be refreshed! Be revived! Be renewed.
